Halloween is our absolute favorite holiday so it should come as no surprise that we love to give little “spooky” presents to our neighbors and friends around this time. Our new favorite gift to give (and eat!) is this Healthier Pumpkin Spice Popcorn inside of a handmade wood version of the classic popcorn box. A perfectly seasoned sweet snack for any witch or ghoul!

I’m so excited to be taking part in Laura Kelly’s Popcorn Box Challenge this year! We were sent an amazing package full of craft goodies as well as the most important piece: The Popcorn Box (graciously donated by World Market!) The only requirement was that we had to use the popcorn box, what we did to decorate and fill the box was 100% up to the blogger.
Since October is always super busy and fun, I decided to go super minimal and easy with my design. I’m a huge fan of Adhesive Wood Veneer and the huge difference it makes in projects. All I had to do was trace each side of the box, peel the protective layer, and stick in place. Super cute wood popcorn box, done and done!
The final addition to my popcorn box was to glue a random Halloween plaque I had left over from another project. If you don’t have one laying around, you could always print off a vintage label online and tape in place. Of course, there are a ton of other ways you could decorate this plain wooden popcorn box. I’d love to see what you come up with so don’t forget to tag me on Facebook or Instagram!
You could always get store-bought popcorn if you’re in a pinch but my recipe for Healthier Pumpkin Spice Popcorn is so easy that anyone can get it done in just minutes. Since I used natural maple syrup, I didn’t feel bad about adding the super cute Pumpkin Candy Sprinkles!
Once the popcorn is made, all that’s left to do is package and assemble inside of the wood popcorn box. So quick and so easy!
